Tears For Fears - The Hurting LP


Pickup currently unavailable at Appleton Store

Originally released in 1983, the debut album from Tears For Fears lit the touch paper that blasted off one of the most stellar careers of the '80s. Immaculately produced, stunningly sequenced and comprised of a selection of timeless electronic pop classics, The Hurting sympathetically explored themes of childhood angst, adolescent heartache and the struggles of the transition from boy to man. It also gave birth to four of the era's essential singles – "Suffer The Children," "Pale Shelter," "Change" and the landmark megahit "Mad World." An iconic blend of rhythmic percussive sounds, swirling synthesizers and soul-baring, heartfelt vocals, The Hurting went on to spend 65 weeks on the U.K. album charts and indelibly set the duo of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith on their way to becoming one of the biggest acts of the decade. New 180g vinyl LP reissue from UMC/Mercury.
